ReproSource Data Breach – Class Action Investigation
Ahdoot & Wolfson is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Quest Diagnostics after it reported that ReproSource, a fertility clinic owned by Quest, suffered a ransomware attack that led to a data breach, exposing a significant amount of health and financial information for about 350,000 ReproSource patients.
Quest said ReproSource provided notice that it experienced a data security incident in which an unauthorized party may have accessed or acquired the protected health information and personally identifiable information of some patients. “On August 8, 2021, an unauthorized party accessed the ReproSource network. ReproSource discovered ransomware on the morning of August 10, and in less than an hour severed all network connection activity and contained the incident,” a company spokesperson explained.
ReproSource began sending out breach notification letters to victims on September 24. The letters tell victims that the personal information leaked during the ransomware attack includes names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, dates of birth and billing information.
Quest’s and ReproSource’s failure to protect sensitive patient information can expose patients to fraud and identity theft. These failures may violate consumer protection and privacy statutes.
